Studies found that over 70% of 18,541 women surveyed from 40 nations were unhappy with the shape or size of their breasts. Almost half wanted larger breasts, while roughly a fourth wanted smaller breasts.
Do you fall into one of these categories? If you do, we want to let you know; first, you are in no way alone, and second, they are ways to fix them.
Today, cosmetic surgeons can improve the appearance of chests with a breast lift. At the Plastic Surgery Group in Montclair, New Jersey, we do breast lifts called mastopexy, which results in lifted breasts with minimal breast size reduction.
Women who do not want to reduce the size of their breasts must know the difference between mastopexy and breast reduction.
Breast Lift vs. Breast Reduction
So, what is the difference between the two?
Breast Lift Overview
A breast lift (mastopexy) is a surgical procedure to lift and restore shape and volume, making breasts firmer and shapelier for a more youthful appearance.
It is performed on women whose breasts have sagged due to extreme weight loss, pregnancy and breastfeeding, age or genetics and who do not want to reduce their breast size.
Breast Reduction Overview
A breast reduction or reduction mammoplasty will reduce breast volume by removing excess skin, fat and soft tissue. This procedure will result in smaller breasts.
The Breast Lift (Mastopexy) and Breast Reduction Procedure
In both the breast lift (mastopexy) and the breast reduction, the cosmetic plastic surgeon most often will need to reposition the nipple and the areola. The primary difference is the surrounding tissue; excess skin will be removed with breast reduction.
The general procedure will involve three incisions. The first incision will circle the areola or dark skin around the nipple. The second will begin below the nipple and continue to the breast’s bottom. And the third incision will be along the base of the breast along the crease. After, the plastic surgeons can define the new location for the nipple and areola, reshaping the breast.
